Border Editing, Tech Tree Editing

Post by S.R.L1234 »

I've been curious, since I got some basics down, how would you edit borders? Is there some sort of general program you can download to edit the map or something, or merge areas to increase the size of a nation? Also, if it were the game to be edited to start at a different time, how would you edit the tech tree or change the time?
If I can get an answer for some general programs, thanks. :wink:

IIRC, you can modify hex-by-hex locations for ownership. Serious pain in the butt to do it, but you can.

You can now mod the borders, using a scripted event - and go from one X,Y... to another X,Y - drawing a line, rectangle, box.

Did you guys break the event 44 :-) ? It works with giving territory from country a to b, but not giving from UN to country b. Giving UN territory to countries worked earlier in Cold War and if I remember correctly even in early stages of the 36 Beta.

An example;

Code: Select all

305561,0,0,44,,0,2989,0,0,0,0,0,1797,279,,,,,,,0,1,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,
305562,0,0,44,,0,2989,0,0,0,0,0,1797,278,,,,,,,0,1,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,
305563,0,0,44,,0,2989,0,0,0,0,0,1796,279,,,,,,,0,1,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,
305564,0,0,44,,0,2989,0,0,0,0,0,1796,280,,,,,,,0,1,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,
305565,0,0,44,,0,2989,0,0,0,0,0,1797,280,,,,,,,0,1,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,
305566,0,0,44,,0,2989,0,0,0,0,0,1798,280,,,,,,,0,1,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,
305567,0,0,44,,0,2989,0,0,0,0,0,1798,279,,,,,,,0,1,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,

We still use it a lot. Here are the notes;


i0: Map x-location 1 (top left)
i1: Map y-location 1
i2: Map x-location 2 (bottom right, or 0)
i3: Map y-location 2

Transfer owner of single hex owned by dbregion transferred to otherdbregion
If dbregion is zero, then force-transfer to other regardless of owner
loyalty does not transfer.
Will not transfer WM hexes
i0, i1 - starting hex (top left corner of box)
i2, i3 - ending hex (bottom right corner of box)

WM I assume does are the international hexes belonging to noone. Thing is that this worked earlier and I implemented it, but does not work anymore. I have around 3000 ev44 already which work, but not international territory.

Doesn't work that way.

Well, I get that, do you plan to reintroduce the feature?

here's a screen of what I'm talking about, in srcw

EDIT:
Here's the same in SR36 8.0.14 with the code copy pasted above

No idea. It was never intended to work for world market hexes. I'm surprised that worked in SRCW.

The reason why I want this to work again, is because I would like to recreate the spratley islands disputes, naval bases like midway, supply bases in oceans, a country of Antarctica(if you wanted to) etc.
